danger. secretary of state kerry reacted this way to putin. he is not going to be able to gain by. this he may have troops some period of time in crimea unless he resolves. this the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage. he that may find himself with asset freezes russian business. american business may call back there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there is a huge price to pay. >> but the only way russia will lose is if president obama moves quickly to punish that nation. the way to do that is to move against russian banks. last september, senator richard blumenthal of connecticut urged president obama to slap sanctions on russian banks because they were propping up the assad regime in syria. the president did not do that and assad is still killing innocent people today. but now mr. obama to do it. because that's the only way putin will pull back. the u.s.a. has to power, has the power to crush the russian currency the ruble which is already in trouble. freezing russian assets and boycotting russian banks would badly damage the russian currency. that's the
